Gross Profit Calculation and Field Mapping RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    I am trying to enable some Gross Profit calculations in CRM.
    So far I have created a field on the Product Form called 'GP'
    I have placed an onload calculation which takes the Price away from the standard cost and populating the GP field. This is giving the GP.
    So far so good.

    I would like to map this right through to Quote Product, so the quote product shows total GP (for example if the GP on Item A is £1 then if the quantity is 5, the total GP for the quote on this product is £5).

    Then, the quote should show a total of all GP calculations:
    GP at product level
    GP at Quote product level
    GP at Quote level

    Does this make sense?

  • This is code I use to bring a value from the product (new_supportvalue) down to a contract line when the lookup is used.

    With a little bit of modification, it will get the GP field down to the quote product form.

    Getting it to the quote level could be done with a workflow, more jscript or a plugin. I'm thinking a plugin will be the best solution.
